alright. so we've been trying a new tatict. tactick. tactik. omg. what. strategy. we are talking to everyone and being like "hey, we're representatives of jesus christ and he sent us here to bless your home" and if they accept and afterwards start asking what church we belong to and when we'll come back we know their interested. but if not, they arent. its been super cool!

one lady cried. like. a lot. because she loved us so much.

another said we were the answer to her prayers and she felt much better after.

and we found lucas, who's best friend is on a mission in japan and he isnt going to his church right now and i left him super curious about why there are so many churches that teach everything so differently if god said there was only one and basically YES NEW INVESTIGATOR THAT TOTALLY WILL GO TO CHURCH

literally, i felt the spirit so Strong when we did this. even with the peoplke that didnt want anything afterwards. i know that we're here as representatives of christ, nothing less, and we're here to do what he would do if he were here, and this is something he would do. literally this is being so cool.

also god loves his children because i tried to call a less active member here in chã de bebedouro and instead managed to call a less active member in canaã which is part of my old área jardim do horto, and he said he'll go this sunday! like, literally that was impossible how that happened. wow am i greatful that i called every single member on our list this week (i called so many people i am so tired of the phone now never again). our phone doesnt work. like, where we are the carrier Claro doesnt work well so NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND US. the secretary gave us a second chip to see if it got better, like, if it was a ploblem with our line but it didnt get any better. we understand everything but we cant say anything most of the time.

what else? idk. this computer sucks. presidente hit me the other day that was cool. not HIT me hit me but like, i said i was going to call lots of people and use all our credits since it was the last day and he hit me and was like "se liga (idk what htis is in english like...get with the program? idk) youve got two chips thats twice the credits CALL EVERYONE" and i was like "well. ok" and used everything.

this week SUCKED because we spent most of the week without water. President let us spend two days in ganuza's house because, like, that was not going to end well (my companion recovering from worms and not being able to flush the toilet was not something I was willing to live through)

so. we did a dumb thing. we played uno where who loses has to drink a cup of water. and i think we drank like 4 liters each something like that idk WOW I ALMOST DIED. sunday i didnt manage to eat anything at all and i ended up laying on the floor in the members home at lunch because i was not having it.

but even though we were literally dying we were like "wow with everything this week we barely worked so we HAVE TO WORK TODAY" so we did and guess what happened. WE GOT 17 REFERRALS IN ONE DAY WHAT THE HECK. so this week all we gonna do is freaking contact these referrals and its gonna be great because now we have a place to start. Literally I believe so strongly that god blesses us when we sacrifice for him because we only got these referrals because we went out to work even though i was very much convinced that i was going to throw up 3 litros of water

im famous

alright so we didnt work this week because my companion had worms which was fun. literally worms is the worst thing ever if i ever get worms pls kill me.

BUT at the end of the week we managed to go out and we visited like all of the members who thought we were mad at them because we werent visiting anyone....oops. but we visited everyone and now they all like us again #success. and on sunday we found  A TON OF LESS ACTIVE MEMBERS THAT STILL HAVE TESTIMUNIES WOOOOHOOOOO for sure they'll become active again!! this ward is really needing that right now so it'll be good for us.

what else. oh. last monday i went crazy.

like, I was getting so ugly I'm not a pretty blonde and my hair was not looking too great after 15 months in brazil

so i chopped it all off.

and died it red.

and so today this dude stopped me in the street and was like "wow youre pretty are you brasilian is this your natural hair wow omg wow" and i was like "um no tchau" and he was like "oh its because im a photographer and im doing a project on redheads from alagoas(the state im in)" and basically my companion almost died laughing

and people keep staring at me. like. they already did. but idk. maybe i shouldnt have done this.
